A new motion estimation/compensation scheme for full-motion interframe video compression is proposed in this paper.  This scheme is based on prediction of inter-block motion information using minimum absolute difference block matching and hence substantially increases the searching and computation efficiency.  A comparison is also made with the “optimal” full motion searching scheme for a standard test sequence.
